In early March, Bowling Green linebacker Austin Valdez announced his intention to transfer to a new football program as a graduate transfer. We now know where he is heading: Syracuse.
Valdez will transfer to Syracuse and be eligible to play with the Orange right away this season, according to a report from Scout.com over the weekend. Valdez will add some good depth to the Syracuse defense and he should step right into an opportunity to start for the ACC program.
